Punjab minister alleges opposition tries to bribe him for treason

Yawar Abbas, the Punjab minister, said that the opposition attempted to purchase his loyalty in a bid to remove the province’s chief minister, Usman Buzdar.

Yawar Abbas stated that a larger political group in the opposition attempted to purchase his loyalty by promising him generous benefits and a prominent position in the next government.

According to the Punjab minister, the opposition gave between Rs100 and Rs200 million to each MPA in exchange for betraying the PTI-led Punjab government. He further stated that a large number of PTI members have been contacted.

Yawar Abbas claimed that all of the members had turned down offers from the opposition and pledged to stand by Prime Minister Imran Khan in difficult times.
